I posted my opinion, I think it's a much better choice than what we had,
and best that is currently available at least that I've heard of.

I have been in touch with Michael Chase-Salerno and Sean Dague of IBM
who are maintainers of parts of the overall System Installation Suite
(of which SystemImager is a key piece).  They are very interested in
supporting Carrier installation, and putting in plans to provide
whitepapers on install (as an interim step to handling reliable
upgrade/rollback) and code to move system install forward.

This item was something that we need to discuss a bit in NYC, I don't
expect us to be in a position to get all of the info we want/need, but
my time has not been mine to prepare this more properly.  In any case,
SIS and its components is not yet fully ready to handle the requirements
as previously discussed, but it appears to be a good start.
